I'm back. Finally found the time to get this darn thing working again. Technology, to you I say "Bah!". I used to be good at this stuff you know. In the 90's... ;-]
ahhh...been looking for a while for a look that's out there and fresh but still matches my taste and I've found it thanks to etsy! It's steampunk and vintage with a goth edge. Beautiful stuff. Now if I could just have a little more cash to buy some of these gorgeous things:
Well...today it's more about the house!

My home is a large, gracious place with deep verandahs, surrounded by fruit trees and flowers. Lorikeets come there to eat, and other small birds which I think might be finches. I love the smell of the garden in the evening, as the warmth of the day lingers and frangipani, star jasmine and gardenia combine.
I'm trying a new experiment. I'm going to blog for 21 days as if I am living the exact life I really want to. It's a fantasy diary which will keep me focused on what I really want. I intend to see whether visualisation really works by testing the ideas behind the popular book The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.
I haven't done a post for over three months. When I look back over our family photos I can see why. We've been so busy! First there was Halloween which isn't normally celebrated by Australians. However, it's starting to catch on for some reason.
We attended the Oxford Street trick or treat, organised by local businesses, which was a safe(r) time for the kids. O was gobsmacked that people were actually giving him sweets for *no reason*. Priceless!
Good to offload a lot of guilt next time you want to do something - anything - for yourself but feel compelled to go clean the bathroom. After reading this I realised that letting go of some things around the house would free me up to have more fun. Sounds like a no-brainer, I know, but you'd be surprised how hard it is for many of us mothers to neglect housework, especially if you're a neat-freak like me.
Been having a lot of fun lately. The little ones dragged out some of my old wigs used in drama performances and we had bit of a laugh pretending we had Big Hair. N looks so different!
